Now is your chance to get in on the ground floor!

Everyone awake? Good! So here's the deal... we're just starting on the editing for the Dark Temple. There's no better time to do art for this new book than now! As usual, if you'd like to submit artwork, please post in the Dark Temple thread in the Workshop what you're doing so that we don't get a lot of duplicate effort. Then, just submit your work as usual, either in your own art thread, in the Dark Temple thread, or directly by email to me: solomoriah@basicfantasy.org

I need a piece of art for Field Guide volume 2. Specifically, I need a one-column (so, portrait-shaped, at least 675 pixels wide, up to twice that tall) image of one of the following monsters:

Volcano Fairy
Fool's Idol
Fyrenewt
Gellybone

I'm needing to improve the flow leading up to the Geminate Serpents; however, the Fairy section has a fragile flow, so I don't really want art of monsters earlier than that (though if it turns up, I'll probably use it...)

Here's the volcano fairy (I'm reposting it because I had a mistake, this is the final, correct version):

I just realized... we have no color cover art for Field Guide Volume 2.

Anyone interested?

I am interested. When would you need it by, and any ideas as to what you'd want, or is it artist's choice?

Solo will reply with any specifics he'd like. I really like your lighting/shading, curious to see how it looks in color. But in general:

Cover art pieces work best if they are landscape orientation, or at most square; upright images are harder to work with, unless you specifically leave me space at the top and bottom for the titling. Professional artists know about this, but many of the artists we work with got their start working with us and have not yet learned all the lessons. Take a look at existing covers to see what I have to work in, and then just try to leave me room to do it, either by doing a landscape-orientation picture or by making sure the top quarter and bottom eighth of the picture contain nothing important.

As to what to show... what Chi said. Monsters. From FG2, obviously. Bonus points if you present some adventurers facing them down, but this is not necessary. I generally leave the choice of what to illustrate up to the artist... whatever inspires you is probably good with me. If you aren't sure, ask.
